Fatima is a Hazara girl, raised to be obedient and dutiful.

Samiullah is a Pashtun boy raised to defend the traditions of his tribe.

They were not meant to fall in love. But they do.

And the story that follows shows both the beauty and the violence in current-day Afghanistan as Fatima and Samiullah fight their families, their cultures and the Taliban to stay together.

Based on the people Atia Abawi met and the events she covered during her nearly five years in Afghanistan, this stunning novel is a must-read for anyone who has lived during America’s War in Afghanistan.
